Inquiry into Greyhound Racing NOW

Mass graves. Live baiting. Doping. Deadly tracks. Tiny cages. Gambling. Violence. Cruelty. Neglect...

The greyhound racing industry is beyond redemption.

Greyhounds, like all dogs, crave love, attention, fun, and comfort – all things denied to them by the racing industry.

The stats for injuries and deaths are shocking. 16 greyhounds were injured in just TWO race meetings in a month at Wentworth Park in Sydney. 4 suffered serious injuries, likely ending their racing careers.

No amount of safety “upgrades” will stop the injuries and deaths of these poor dogs.

This cruelty can't continue. Greyhounds deserve better than a life of injuries and pain. 

Join us in demanding an Upper House Parliamentary Inquiry into the greyhound racing industry.

With a Parliamentary investigation into the industry's practices, we can expose them once and for all. The Minns Government will be left with no choice but to concede that greyhound racing has no place in NSW.

A previous attempt to ban greyhound racing:

Six years ago in NSW, we were on the brink of something amazing. After being shaken to the core by a Four Corners expose, a Parliamentary Inquiry was launched resulting in the damning ‘McHugh Report’: overwhelming evidence of “systematic animal cruelty”, from mass killing to live baiting, racing deaths, injuries and mistreatment.

The Inquiry found that in the past 12 years, up to 68,448 dogs were killed because they were “unsuitable or too slow for racing”, as well as 7,000 healthy puppies and young dogs who never even made it to the track.

In the face of such incontrovertible and horrific evidence, then–NSW Premier Mike Baird announced the end of the industry. It was a remarkable (albeit short-lived) act of political integrity and decency. But no sooner had he announced the ban that the industry moved into overdrive.

Right-wing shockjocks and the Labor opposition killed the ban and embraced the industry, and today, six years on, the greyhound racing industry seems more entrenched than ever.

But we’re not letting them getting away with it.

We know that the people of NSW stand with us in our fight to end this cruelty. We must keep the pressure up on the government, and expose the extent of corruption and cruelty in this senseless industry.
